LARAMIE -- It's officially college football season.

Man, that sentence feels good to write.

There are 11 games on the docket during Zero Week, including the Wyoming Cowboys traveling to Champaign, Ill., to take on the Fighting Illini. This will be the first-ever meeting between the two schools. Kickoff is scheduled for 2 p.m. Mountain Time and the game will be televised by the Big Ten Network.

If you're new to, we pick games each week in this space. This year -- aside from this Saturday -- we will choose our winner in 12 games across the college landscape, with a main focus on the Mountain West Conference.

Fellow league members Utah State, Nevada, Hawaii and UNLV are also teeing it off on Saturday.

Here's our weekly pickers:

Master of graphics, Jen Kost

The guy who makes the money, Jared Newland

My LA Rams -- not CSU -- obsessed coworker, Doug Randall

Mr. Do Everything, Mat Murdock

Photographer extraordinaire, DJ Johnson 

And the guy who rarely gets any picks right, me, Cody Tucker

Each week we will randomly select a pair of fans to join us. This Saturday, Carli Bassett and Ronald Hochstatter get that dubious honor.

As of now, Wyoming is an 11-point underdog at Illinois. Here are the other available odds, which, of course, are subject to change:

Northwestern (+13.5) at Nebraska (in Ireland)

UConn (+27.5) at Utah State

Charlotte (+7.5) at Florida Atlantic

North Texas (-1) at UTEP

Nevada (-9.5) at New Mexico State

Vanderbilt (-7.5) at Hawaii

Welp, here goes nothing. Here are our Zero-Week picks:
